Jay-Z, Beyonce Make A Stop At The White House While In DC For Tour Stop

Jay-Z, Beyonce, Tina Knowles and guest at the White HouseHip-hop’s first couple, Jay-Z and Beyoncé, finally made it to the White House … only for a visit that is.

Jay and B visited the nation’s First Family at the White house on Wednesday (March 3) while in town during a stop on the “BP3” tour, where he performed at the city’s Verizon Center.

A White House official said the rapper — alongside his wife/singer Beyonce, her mother Tina Knowles, singer Trey Songz, and industry veteran Kevin Liles — toured the residence.

Then later, Jay actually had a quick, unscheduled visit with President Obama, said the Washington Post.

The hip-hop superstar shared news of the visit with fans during his show that evening, before wishing a White House staffer’s child happy birthday.

“I don’t know where you are, but happy birthday. I just came from the White House. And your pop works there. He said, ‘Happy Birthday,’ ” Jay said.

In an interview with Interview magazine last month, Jay reflected on his rise from the streets all the way to the White House, saying it “was crazy” that he could even meet with these powerful people.

“For me, being with [President] Obama or having dinner with Bill Clinton … It’s crazy,” he said. “It’s mind-blowing, because where I come from is just another world. We were just ignored by politicians — by America in general.”

  3. OMG!! how jealous am i?!! But i give Jay and B, mom’s and Liles mad props for holding it down in the big house. Beyonce looks stunning.
    And well done to Obama et al for recognising hip hop. Every smart player knows that you gotta have the major influencers in your back pocket to reach the kids on these streets. The kids will make the difference come election time. Great Strategy! I am so glad Obama didn’t ignore his own kind once he reached the top!! That’s keeping your s*it real!!

  4. ^^DNICE, dont think Jay can make the presidency considering he plead guilty to stabbing Lance “Un’ Rivera…not a good look for a president of the US. I love Jay though. He gets my respect.
